Experience makes the difference for construction videos.
One of the many kinds of videos that we here at Capture Video create is owner training videos. When a new building goes up, the government and other clients often require that the construction company document everything that the future maintenance staff will need to know about the mechanical and electrical equipment behind the scenes. This includes things like HVAC, fans, pumps, and lighting controls. We’ve worked with companies such as J.E. Richards, Johnson Controls, Pierce Associates, Siemens Industries, Clark Construction, and Truland Systems. We’ve worked onsite at some of the area’s biggest construction jobs including BRAC, NCE, Constitution Center, National Air and Space Museum, and INOVA Fairfax Hospital, to name a few.
Capture Video brings some really critical advantages to a construction video. Both our people and our equipment can meet government requirements for secure sites. We have things like wired microphones so that none of the audio will be transmitted wirelessly. All of our crew has the correct documentation for working in the US, and specifically to work on secure sites; everyone is willing to sign the appropriate paperwork for background checks and any other requirements that may be necessary for a secure site. Here in the Northern Virginia/DC area, this can be a very important consideration. The crew also brings their own PPE (personal protective equipment) and is generally experienced in behavior and safety for a construction site.
Capture Video also brings years of experience specifically on construction videos. While they aren’t certified experts, they have a very good understanding of how each piece of equipment works. This allows them to focus the recording on the most critical aspects of each piece of equipment to insure clarity for the eventual audience of the training video. Capture Video is also experienced in reading the spec documents and can help insure that all the site specific criteria are met, acting as the on-site director when necessary. If the spec requires that all instructors repeat all questions, or that the instructor narrating state their name and the company name before each segment, the crew will make sure those critical details are included. If the spec requires that each training be no longer than 15 minutes, the professionals at Capture Video will help you determine how to break that 4 hour long process into reasonable 15 minute segments.
Great audio and excellent production values aren’t very helpful when the video doesn’t show the correct details and doesn’t meet the owner specifications. Capture Video has the experience to help you get it done correctly the first time.
